What's the most powerful brushed ESC?

Hi all! I am looking for the highest current ESC made for brushed motors. It only has to handle 12 cells and it would be best if it had a brake, but I'll take whatever I can get.

Dunno, but those electric trains are pretty powerful...and sme of them used to use brushed motors

If you build your own, sensible practical limits are probably 100V and 100A without getting ridiculously expensive.

Andy Kunz (rchydros) may have something that can handle even more current.

Must be for a LMR plane, since you want a brake

That is pushing cells to the very limits!!
